I have a red brick wall backsplash that goes around both above and below the cupboards. To remove it is too costly and would probably require replacing the drywall. Also do I paint the brick the same colour as the rest of the kitchen walls? Do I have to use a special paint for the brick?

Yes, you can paint brick. Go to your local box store and ask for a masonry paint. It will take a while to get it covered and you'll have to use the right rollers and brushes to get into the cracks and grooves but you should be able to do it. Since it's in the kitchen, I would clean it really well first or kilz over it to keep the grease from messing with your paint. I would also see if you need to use a sealant (an exterior paint would probably suffice).
